USA BMX, a bicycle motocross organization, will produce stop number seven of the 2017 USA BMX National Series March 31 – April 2, 2017 in Rock Hill, SC, at The Novant Health BMX Supercross Track.
Riders from around the globe will meet in Rock Hill where 2,000 entries are expected for the three days of competition. Last year at the 2016 Carolina Nationals in Rock Hill, more than 1,300 riders competed from 15 different countries and 37 states. Included in the lineup this year, Rock Hill will see a reunion amongst the 2016 U.S. Olympic team – Alise Post, Brooke Crain, Connor Fields, Corben Sharrah and Nic Long are all scheduled to compete.
“I’m looking forward to being back in Rock Hill,” said 2016 Olympic gold medalist Connor Fields. “It’s always one of my favorite tracks to race on, and I always feel the southern hospitality.’
California’s Brooke Crain said, “I always love coming to Rock Hill. It’s one of the best facilities we have here in the US. – track is good, facility is beautiful, people are nice and it’s a great warm up as we head into the World Championships that will also be held at this track in July.”
Recently crowned the Collegiate National Champion, Carolina’s hometown pro Justin Posey said, “I’m very excited to get back to the east coast and race in front of my home crowd. Growing up in Winston-Salem, Rock Hill was always my local track and has a special place in my heart. It will always be one of my favorite places to race, and I’m really looking forward to racing and hopefully will bring home a win for the Carolinas.”
South Carolina currently has three local BMX tracks that hold weekly races, practices and clinics. Races will begin Friday, March 31, at 2:30 p.m.; on Saturday, races begin at noon; and on Sunday, races begin at 8 a.m.
